Turbos work off the exhaust of your vehicle. Reason why the Exhaust manifold is where the Turbo usually rests. PSI is measure of how hard your turbo works. Necessarily this is where many people measure their hp. Wrong. It all depends on what WHP you're looking to recieve. Is this ride your daily driver? If so I would shoot for an easily accomplished 300hp. Although I'm not quite sure if the stock sleeves would participated with a direct turbo kit. By the way don't buy an ebay turbo kit. Ur just asking for trouble. When boosting save, and by reliable parts. You go cheap, you go broke. Check

Turbo Kits come with everything you need including the turbocharger, to have a turbo on your has some turbo kits for the Integra.And no, you will not find a Turbo Kit cheaper than $1500, or even $2000 unless used.Turbo Kits include turbochargers, piping, intake, intercooler, and a few more things.You also need to upgrade the ECU if the turbo kit does not include it and buy a boost controller if the turbo kit does not include it.Other things you need to buy separately are Boost Gauge and fuel gauge and air/fuel gauge.Boost Controller is what lets you adjust the boost level.Turbo's are usually automatically set a 5 to 7psi because that is safest for the engine and adds 50 to 100HP.For more boost(psi), you would need to spend another $1500+ on buying forged rods and pictons and other mechanical parts to handle more power.Turbocharger works by using the pressure from the heat of the exhaust gases to spin the turbine. The spinning turbine pushes more air into the engine.More air=More power.The VW GTI has 10psi stock with 200HP.The Mazdaspeed 3 has 14.5 psi stock with 263HPThe Mazdaspeed Protege has 6psi stock with 170HP.Having 20psi on an Integra would give it 400+HP, but again, you would need stronger engine internals and exhaust system and upgraded transmission and clutch and just better and stronger parts than stock for that kind of power.For automatic transmission cars, there are not many turbo kits available for them. And they are for low power only. They are not easy to install and it is a 5+ hour job to get it installed by professionals at a mechanic shop.
